Lots of snow and wind, cleared my car park 3 times yesterday including in the evening and there was about 40cm or more each time, ridiculous.

Tenjin is shut again, Hodaigi had 60cm at the base, yesterday morning, opened the top lift in the afternoon and they had to close it after an hour and rescue everyone. Heard a lifty got stuck on the way down at day end and was rescued with a groomer at 6:30m.

At Okutone now and there is loads of great snow.

In summary, an excellent storm to build the snow base, reported at 2.5m at Tenjin this morning, maybe a little too much for your average punter to ride on.

(Not that anyone reading this is in any way average!) ;)
